Easy Roti recipe

Bachoo(my 4 year old daughter) and her great nanima  who is over 80 years old were having a roti making competition one day. Make the roti’s beeger beeger. the old fashion velan vs the roti making maching.  Let say someone ended up in tears.


3 cups flour

1 t salt

3 T oil enough water to form a soft dough

1 cup soft butter or margarine oil for frying


Mix the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl and add the oil.

Rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add water and mix to a fairly soft dough.

Roll out on a floured surface and roll to the size of a 23 x 32cm rectangle.

Spread the dough with softened butter and roll it up like a Swiss roll.

Cover with a tea towel and leave for 30 minutes.

Break off pieces of dough and form into balls the size of tennis balls.

Roll out each ball into a disc the size of a dinner plate.

Fry in hot oil for 2 minutes on each side.
